More Score!

Yesterday, at Goodwill, Rick noticed a large plastic bag stuffed with embroidery thread, which he grabbed up for me (price $7.00).  I just now got around to opening it, and to my surprise, there was a variety of different brands. One is Peri-Lusta, which I had never heard of, for good reason – it’s vintage embroidery thread, c. 1910 to 1934, and there’s a whole lot of it, much of it green, which I could use on the tree quilt. There’s also vintage Star Embroidery Cotton (American Thread Co.), vintage Bucilla, Coats & Clark, and DMC. It’s all very old, and in great shape. As seen in the last photo, there’s also quite a bit of unbranded vintage thread. On the one hand, I want to use it, and the other, I want to hoard it.  Images 1500 x, click for larger size. I’ll just sit here with my jaw somewhere on the floor, and be amazed. And happy.

  1. I am too, Love! I’m laying down the first vintage on the tree quilt now. Wonderful quality (Peri-Lusta), fat, gleaming strands that lay down nicely.
